SOS Benefits from Coat Check
Tuesday, March 01, 2016


SOS participated at the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber’s Foundation Gala providing the coat check for guests. The Gala was at Washtenaw Community College with this year’s theme set as Hawaiian Luau! Dressed in Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts community members participated in the silent auction, enjoyed food and beverages and partook in the entertainment activities like the photo booth. With generous contributions from attendees SOS raised over $300 in donations to benefit our programs!

Special thanks to the A2Y Chamber for allowing SOS to host the coat check!
